prove upon these noble designs of past centtr ,They stand
unrivalled today, expressed in fine w ods, e e y finished; they

Yet Period Furniture is urprisingly Inexpensive
when one considers that it will last a lifetime and may be cher
ished by our grand children as their proudest possession.
We Invite Your Special Attention to Our Period
Dining Room suits in mahogany and walnut. If you are planning
to refurnish soon, they will greatly interest you as the prices at
